Variants of equidistribution in arithmetic progression


 It is well known that the prime numbers are equidistributed in arithmetic progression. Such a phenomenon is also observed more generally for a class of multiplicative functions. We derive some variants of such results and give an application to tuples of squarefree integers in arithmetic progression. We also discuss an interesting application that relates to the Chowla conjecture on correlations of the Möbius function, and show its relevance to the twin prime conjecture.
